Location information for Portugal

Portugal is best explored by rental car. ERentals has over 77 pick-up locations in Portugal. This means there is always a pick-up location close to your destination.

Portugal has a wealth of activities and holiday options to offer its visitors. Not just the spectacular Algarve, but the fascinating cities of Lisbon and Lagos, fantastic food, and world famous wines: Portugal really can deliver the perfect European holiday.

Of course, the beautiful beaches and well-established resorts of the Algarve are some of the best holiday making places in Europe. They also boast quality golfing, and great international links, with an international airport at Faro, the capital of the region, and are within easy reach by cheap Portugal car hire of resorts like Vilamoura, Vale de Lobo, and Albufeira.

The country's capital city, Lisbon, which underwent a regeneration program in the late 1990s, has some fabulous architecture, great museums and fascinating old parts such as Alfama and Baixa. After sunset the area of Bairro Alto comes alive, and you can while away the warm evenings with music, food, and great cheap wine.

If you're a sun-worshipper or just enjoy a good sea breeze then there are options other than the Algarve. The more remote and quieter but equally beautiful Costa Verde is a great place to see real coastal Portugal.

If you're needing some retail therapy then the Chiado area of Lisbon is the place to go, and you won't be disappointed; you can shop until you drop using your car hire in Portugal. The tourist towns all have quaint souvenirs and handicrafts for sale too, and can be a good chance to pick up some local colour to take home.

Heading north in your car rental, Porto, home of Portugal's world famous beverage, Port, is a great city to enjoy for a few days, or to explore the wine country from. To get out into the countryside proper is easy with your Portugal car hire and the Douro Valley gives a taste of scenic rural Portugal at its finest.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is ERentals the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by ERentals? at this location
